The Pocket Art Gallery app enables you to hang famous artworks wherever you are in the world. Use this free augmented reality app to take publicly owned paintings and hang them in your own living room or place them outside in the street. A J.M.W. Turner landscape could complement your local park or a dramatic Pre-Raphaelite painting could brighten up your work place. You can search one hundred paintings from art galleries across the country, including Tate Britain, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums, Norfolk Museums & Archaeology Services, and Museums Sheffield. Each painting includes information to help you learn more about the artist, place, or artwork origin.

By choosing your own art collection and then looking through your iPhone camera you will be able to see your paintings hung in the real world. You can also take photos of your art collection and share them with friends on Facebook, Twitter or the Pocket Art Gallery map.

Pocket Art Gallery is available free from the Apple App store.
